I always wanted to learn how to really defend myself against anyone male or female. I know how street fight but i just want to really know how to protect myself.

They say that even the ones that take those classes, and even 'Concealed Carry' classes, usually can't use what they learned, because most of us, NORMAL people, are subconsciously opposed to hurting someone!! Our natural instinct, from some 'lower brain' is to run!!
I think most of those classes fall short, as they don't do 'Live Tests' after the classes. They show you the 'moves', but if you never experience it, until you need it, it FAILS!!!
The military trains in weapons, deployment, who does what, and when. Then they DO IT, LIKE IT WAS REAL!!! with simulations, or paint balls, or whatever.
Any self-defense class, teaching, is incomplete, without the REAL WORLD Challenge!!
Complete training, so you can REALLY be confident, involves real world 'attacks' at unexpected times!! How will you know when someone will attack you?
You need to be 'TESTED' as if someone was REALLY attacking you, and respond, and see where you fail, or remember the teachings!!
THAT, is COMPLETE defense training!
Just about every class I have seen is just some 'Feel-Good' Bullsht, to make you feel safer, but what will you REALLY DO, if someone actually attacks you?

There's an old saying. "Even the most well-trained of warriors can cower in the face of real battle".
So, I'd guess I would say yes, it would help you in general. But if you freak out in the moment and it's not practice, but real life, like someone jumps out at you from an ally and you freak out instead of remembering your self defense, it won't do you must good.0
